So, it’s been six months since the Cafe Racer shootings. Seems like a lifetime ago and yet again, it seems like yesterday. We are playing two shows in December to raise money for the families and lone survivor of the shootings. I think right now, more than ever, these folks need our help and it gives us the opportunity to remember our friends, honor their memory and have a good time drinking and singing!
The first of these events is the Tom Waits Tribute Night where we’ll be playing two Waits songs alongside a bevvy of musical homies. I think we go on around midnight but the whole night should be great and it all happens at Conor Byrnes on Friday, December 7.
Thanks to all that came out to the Columbia City Theater on Sunday night. A good time was had by all.
The Bad Thing’s next public appearance will be a live television broadcast! That’s right, good ‘ol live Bad Things action beaming right into your living room. I get tingles just thinking about it. Our television debut will air on Friday, March 30th at 8pm on the Seattle Channel (Channel 21) as part of Art Zone with Nancy Guppy. We’ll be performing one brand new song and one Bad Things classic. The episode will also be re-broadcast throughout the following week so check out the schedule and find a time that’s convenient for you.
After that, on Friday, April 6th, we’ll return to the Columbia City Theater with the great Titanium Sporkestra headlining and Oakland’s legendary Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children MacNuggets opening. This is a dream lineup for a Friday night and a good opportunity to engage in questionable behavior in a non-judgmental atmosphere. Hey, what happens in Columbia City, stays in Columbia City. We promise.
You can pick up tickets from Brown Paper Tickets right over here. I recommend picking them up in advance as this will be a packed show.
Here’s a little preview of Bobby Ebola’s classic “Life Is Excellent.”
